We decided to check Korkki out today and did the 6k. The trail looked like it had been groomed pretty recently based on the side cord, however, it has also seen quite a bit of traffic including at least one person who most likely found what I consider intermediate to advanced trails (because of the curvy, narrow, hilly paths) to be very challenging ...lots of butt prints on the downhills and a few other spots, wiped out corners, and foot prints on the sides of the tracks along with at least one side step on the downhills. Mother Nature blew quite a bit of debris into the tracks too. It was fun though, and luckily the debris was not the "ski stopping" kind for the most part, I was a bit concerned about my skis though. It is such a peaceful fun trail! If you go more than two times a year, it's totally worth getting their membership! Remember to put some money in the box that is next to the map either way to support the grooming!

So good! Freshly groomed classic tracks for the perfect downhill fly and uphill momentum. And as always, full of charm. I am thankful for this gem of the Northwoods.

Was likely groomed this morning after snow and wind subsided. Trails were nice, several skiers out and tracks were work a bit, but still good conditions.

Trails have been groomed since the most recent snowfall. First time on these trails and they are awesome. Worth a stop for sure.

Our family skied Korkki just after the second grooming of the afternoon. The 10K was good - downhills fast - well-groomed. Not a lot of debris. The final kilometer was closed for flooding and re-routed so that the first 1/2K was two-way. Gorgeous day out there!

Trails are in great condition. Poles still break through every so often but Korkki is truly a Nordic skiiers dream. Only a few places had a branch or two down but the trail is in fantastic condition overall.

Magic! That is what we found when the Marshall Nordic Ski team arrived at Korkki for a long classic ski. The trail conditions were perfect, the chalet warm and the smiles on the skiers faces genuine. We skied for about 2 hours and then had chili and beet soup for lunch. I am a teacher so my assignment for an exit ticket was that each of the skiers had to write a meaningful comment in the Korkki log book.

Just fantastic out there, I'll just throw in some photos for proof. Iso Maki is open but I chickened out.

Korkki was in great shape this morning at -3F. A couple college teams were doing training runs, so had the benefit of a fast, skied-in track. Fabulous conditions for this early in the year, and top notch grooming, per usual. Get out there.
